HOMEWORK

We are an Advance Academic Placement School, therefore the curriculum is very in depth and it requires a certain amount of class work as well as homework. All the students from fourth through eighth grade have a homeroom hour from Monday through Friday to work in their homework.


TEXT BOOKS

Our school uses many different textbooks and materials, some of them are from A Beka Books, which are very complete and child friendly. A Beka Books are written from a Christian perspective, and may contain a few biblical passages throughout their chapters. Our teachers are instructed to cross, and disregard any information that might be offensive to some of the students’ beliefs. Our school reserves the right to use such materials.


PARENT-TEACHER-MEETING

Are announced in the yearly calendar and in the monthly calendar only, but may be scheduled as warranted by the teacher or parent.


PTA MEMOS / GENERAL INFORMATION

Are sent to you by e-mail. If you change your e-mail address, please provide us the new one. You many also check the office Bulleting Board for this information.


SCHOOL PTA ANNUAL EVENTS FEE

In order to help you plan in advance your school expenses for the year, you have an option to pay annual events fees of $250.00 at the beginning of the school year or to make 10 monthly installment payments of $25.00. Payments are to be added to your tuition monthly payment. These fees will cover the cost of organizing the children’s activities and the fundraiser events throughout the year. Field trips are not included.


PTA COMMITTEES

All those parents who volunteer to actively participate as chairman of individual committees for fundraising or school events will receive a 5% discount on their tuition at the end of the school year. Participating members for the individual committees for fundraising or school events will receive a credit of $100 towards summer camp at the end of the school year. This opportunity is limited and it is based on a first come - first serve basis. We encourage you to attend our first PTA meeting to sign up and take advantage of the discount.
